My First March Order

No Etsy sales to report yet. However, there is good news to share. I got an order for a scarf today.  That’s my first order for this month.   Sometimes, giving gifts to friends and family is a good form of advertising. I got the order because V’s boyfriend liked the scarf I crocheted for her . V’s scarf is chocolate-brown. Her boyfriend wants a black scarf.  Thank you V.

More good news, I now have 4 items crocheted to add to my Etsy shop.  I send my items I want posted on Etsy to my friend A to photograph for me. I hope to give him all I have finished by March 22.  Hopefully, he will email me the photos before March 31. But, if he takes a little longer it is no problem.  He is doing me a big favor. He is a professional photographer and he isn’t charging me.

I will take pictures myself  of other items I make, that I don’t plan to sell on Etsy, so that I can post them on this blog.    When I finally get Etsy orders, I have found a few people who have volunteered to go post office for me.   I delegate as many tasks to others as I can. It leaves me more energy to crochet. 

I learned  not to be so prideful.  I do what I am physically able to do. I ask for help for what I can’t do.  If I don’t get help with something it doesn’t get done.  With each day, I become more accepting of what doesn’t get done. I rejoice in all my accomplishments no matter how small they seem. I am thankful for all others do for me. 

I decided to use the project section of the site to list my hooks and knitting needles. I am also keeping track of my projects in Ravelry’s project section. Yesterday, I crocheted P’s scarf. I didn’t finish it. Today, I started a baby sweater. I have small newborn baby caps  posted on Etsy that haven’t sold yet.  I decided to crochet a matching sweater for the caps to post on my Etsy shop. Well, it’s time for me to get back to crocheting that sweater.

    I’m so jealous about your photographer friend! Do I ever wish I could mail my things off to get their pics taken. Mine pictures are still my shops worst feature, and they are what everyone says are supposed to be the best!

    I look forward to seeing your new additions!

    I have seen your site. I think your pictures are fine. Ialso like the variety of items you offer.

  3. I’m with Sue. I wish I had help. But then I wish I had an Etsy site too. Perhaps some day.

    Yes I have wonderful friends. Etsy is nice. But I think you will enjoy interacting with your customers face to face at your booth.
